Nothing exudes the start of a new season and quarter than a brand-new column – which brings us to the here and now, fellow readers! We’re excited to announce the first edition of Want, Need, Read, Wear – the weekly feature will encompass the top pick from our team for each category. WANT is a current must-have and the kind of product which when we decide to ‘sleep on it’ makes an appearance in our dreams and is one of the first things that cross our minds when we sip that first cup of coffee in the morning. NEED is as you may assume a pure necessity – whether it’s that *one* it bag or accessory we’re spotting everywhere or the latest Amazon buy we plan to reorder. READ isn’t limited to a book, (although we’ve got a handful of best-sellers we’re dying to share with you) it can be a recent article we’ve bookmarked or the latest newsletter we subscribed to and read on our way to work. Lastly, WEAR will introduce solely fashion purchases, including but not limited to that one pair of white trousers we must add to our summer collection or those just under $10 heart shaped sunglasses available on Amazon Prime, and happen to be a fraction of the original YSL pair (because you know we love a bargain!).Let’s jump right into it, shall we?
Nothing screams the festive season more than a dark red velvet robe dress with tasseled hems. This gorgeous piece by Rhode Resort is an absolute best-seller and the perfect pick for Christmas Eve. We love anything belted, and the cinched waist will be ideal for any meal, from a light lunch to an indulgent dinner. What’s more, it’s currently on sale, so hurry!
There’s something to be said about hair accessories this season – we’ve seen a vast array, ranging from old school scrunchies to classic barrettes reinvented with bedazzlement. One more that fits with the season and is a true classic is a velvet bow. Wear yours on a half down half up ponytail or wrapped around a high pony for an immediate holiday feel. It’s also your best friend in the accessories department if there’s no time to put on a whole show!
If you’ve ever been or are dreaming of heading across the pond to the beautiful sunny state of California, then this is your starter pack to recreate anything Cali-style at home. We love the laid-back feel and look of anything Nathan Turner does, and there certainly is something about the relaxed and effortless mood of the West Coast that will make you turn pages faster than any other lifestyle book.
It’s no secret that sequins and anything shiny have been the hit of the season, not just this Fall/Winter, but for decades now. However if rainbow and neon pink sequins aren’t your style (shop our selection here though), then this classic gold piece by J.Crew is a wardrobe staple! We love how versatile it is, making it easier to way from day to night. Wear yours with a slim turtleneck or chunky knit for a daytime look and elevate it at night with a pair of heels and a silk top.
What’s on your wish-list?
